Walker, Scott - Sings Jacques Brel
(Philips 6359.090 UK-81 EX 300:-)

Jacques Brel is to Scott Walker roughly as Woody Guthrie is to Bob Dylan. At a formative point in Walker's career, his sensibility was crucially informed by Brel. So much so that he recorded nine Brel compositions on his first three albums.

This collection shines a spotlight on that part of Walker's musical makeup by putting all of those tracks together in one place. Walker's deep, rich voice bears more than enough high-dramatic quality to pull of the extreme emotional range of Brel's songs.

Original UK pressing. Both Sleeve and Vinyl are graded EX.
Walker, Scott - Stretch
(Epic ECPM-40 Jap-73 EX 300:-)

Scott Walker's first album for CBS, purports to be a detour into country music, but it is a side road that Walker decided not to pursue thoroughly. Only a handful of songs, like Tom T Hall's "That's How I Got to Memphis" and Mike Newbury's "Sunshine," are genuine country songs, and the remainder of the album consists of mainstream pop and folk-rock songs that are quite similar to his latter-day Phillips albums. The difference is that Walker sounds more committed on this record, singing with a greater passion than on any record since Til the Band Comes In.

Scarce Japanese Epic label 11-track vinyl LP, housed in a pasted gatefold picture sleeve with integral Japanese/English lyric insert and obi-strip.
Velvet Underground - Everything You've ever Heard
(VU Records VU-333 UK-82 EX 400:-)

Few rock groups can claim to have broken so much new territory, and maintain such consistent brilliance on record, as the Velvet Underground during their brief lifespan. During their time, the group experienced little commercial success; though they were hugely appreciated by a cult audience and some critics, the larger public treated them with indifference or, occasionally, scorn. The Velvets' music was too important to languish in obscurity, though; their cult only grew larger and larger in the years following their demise, and continued to mushroom through the years.

30-track triple vinyl LP box set, housed in a textured picture box featuring a yellow banana image on the front plus tracklisting insert.

(On Your Own VER-01-LP EU-08 SS 300:-)
Limited edition set, comprised of 12-track 2-LP pressed on 140gram Vinyl, including the single 'Love Is Noise' alongside exclusive vinyl bonus recordings 'Ma Ma Soul' and 'Muhammad Ali', plus CD version of the entire album, plus bonus NTSC DVD featuring 'Space & Time: The Verve Documentary' and live performances from Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, California in April 2008.

This copy is Still Sealed!
Villagers - Live at the Workman's Club, Dublin
(Domino WIGLP273 UK-11 EX 275:-)

Villagers are an Irish indie folk band from Dublin, formed in 2008, after singer Conor O'Brien's break-up of his previous band The Immediate.

Villagers’ night at the Workman’s Club was as much celebration as a gig. Throughout the hour long performance, Conor’s voice ranges from the intimate tones of a friend confiding in you on tracks like ‘27 Strangers’ and ‘The Pact’ to the soaring, almost rapture-like intensity on ‘Pieces’ and ‘Home’.

Exclusive Record Store Day 2011 release.
Wilson, Deirdre - Dierdre Wilson Tabac
(RCA Victor LSP-4283 US-70 VG+ 400:-)

A beautiful bit of funky rocking soul – and the one and only album by the Deirdre Wilson Tabac – a group whose name is as strange as their grooves are funky! The group are best known for their well-compiled track "I Can't Keep From Cryin Sometimes" – an uptempo jazzy gem that mixes skipping Hammond with soaring vocals and some really great horns – and the rest of this set has a very similar feel – one that blends jazz rock with more soulful vocals, in a groove that's totally unique! Sonny Casella wrote, arranged, and produced the record – and he's also the drummer in the group, so there's keen attention to rhythms on all tracks.

Original US pressing.
Vincent, Gene - I'm Back and I'm Proud
(Dandelion S-63754 UK-69 EX 400:-)

Gene Vincent was languishing on the oldies circuit in 1969, attracting slightly more interest in Europe than his US homeland, when he made this album for John Peel’s Dandelion label. Steppenwolf’s Mars Bonfire, The Byrds’ Skip Battin and The Lovin’s Spoonful’s John Sebastian feature in the band, as does a young Linda Ronstadt on backing vocals.

1969 UK 12-track LP, gatefold sleeve with internal pocket. The sleeve shows some very minor wear; the vinyl is in Excellent condition!
